During Juventus' home match against their greatest rival in recent times, Napoli, on Saturday, the offensive chants from the fans were evident. And these did not go unnoticed by Serie A officials based on newspaper reports in Italy on Monday.

Sanctions likely for Juventus

According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, the Bianconero could be sanctioned with the partial closure of their stands, the location where the insults against Napoli were heard, or with a financial fine. The decision will be confirmed on Tuesday, ahead of the club's Champions League match against Young Boys of Bern.

These chants under the spotlight targeted the city of Naples, the club's players and its coach, Carlo Ancelotti. One of the most affected players was Koulibaly, who was subjected to racist abuse, say the claims.
